"a hint of turquoise"

The wife notices, as I had, that the new celadon glaze I have been fiddling with has pleasant turquoise highlights on spring green.  YES.
Like I was saying the last 2 days, isn't this a fun type of handle?  You could say "good grip!", but really it is about making something cool for the glaze to accentuate….frankly, this is the reason why potters get up early, to make things like this, then see them come out of the kiln :)

Very nice breaking celedon!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

That's very cool. Non-potter question here...do you put a different glaze on to get the tan accents or is that just the celedon reacting to the different textures of the pot?

Good question from Claudia... I'd like to know, too!
